Healthier Business Program

Did you know... that in 2002, the average cost of health care per employee was an astounding $4,700?  With health care costs on the rise, how can businesses lower their expenditures? 

The answer…wellness programs.

One of the key factors to running a successful business is maximizing employee productivity while minimizing overall costs.  Studies have repeatedly demonstrated that comprehensive worksite health promotion programs can lower health care and insurance costs, decrease absenteeism, and improve performance and productivity. 

  • For example, Prudential Insurance Company reports that the company’s major medical costs dropped from $574 to $312 for each participant in its wellness program.

One size does not fit all.  La Crosse County Health Department’s Healthier Business Program recognizes this and has made it our mission to work with each company to find customized solutions through the following program services:
